Here’s what was happening on Planet Byn this month: At this point, I’m basically 85% vegetarian, so I was excited when my friend Alexis suggested Boon Burger in Burlington for lunch. This place is entirely vegan and has not one but FOUR different types of burgers (i.e. mushroom based, chickpea based, etc.) which is pretty […]

Easter Treats

This month kicked off with a super fun and cute baking project! I made the treats for my friend Kristine’s niece’s 1st Birthday party. Her sister requested four dozen vanilla cupcakes (I used the recipe from Joy the Baker’s first cookbook) with vanilla icing (I used My Favourite Buttercream) and I ordered the Flamingo sprinkle […]

St. Patrick

This was a pretty low-key month for me, especially since we had super cold wintery-weather, and my hibernation mode was still in effect. Here’s what was going on in the kitchen: It was my friend Jen’s birthday and I made these Black Bottom Cupcakes for her little celebration. They’re chocolate cupcakes with chocolate chip cheesecake centres. […]

February on Planet Byn {2017}

February 28, 2017 Monthly Recaps

February is my most dreaded dreary month, and this year I started it with NOROVIRUS, so it could only get better from there: Jenny, Heather and I trekked up to Richmond Hill to see Molly Yeh do a food demo and talk about her new book Molly on the Range. I’ve followed Molly’s blog over […]

I really tried this to cook at home in January and bring my lunch to work every day, which turns out is easy on your bank account but SUPER BORING. Instead I had friends over a couple times and tried out a bunch of new recipes. Here’s a recap: January always kicks off with a […]

December on Planet Byn {2016}

December 31, 2016 Monthly Recaps

December was busy as usual this year: baking cookies, going to work parties, and bringing cardboard boxes to the recycling room because I did 95% of my Christmas shopping online. Here’s the foodie fun I fit in around all that: December was made so much more joyful for me because of a SQUISH Advent Calendar I […]

November on Planet Byn {2016}

November 30, 2016 Monthly Recaps

November is usually a quiet month around here, where I can re-charge and get set for the holidays, and this year was no different, except I was also sick for most of the month, which sucked. Here’s what else was going on: My Mom took me for a belated birthday brunch to The Crepe Kitchen […]

October 31, 2016 Monthly Recaps

I spent the first half of this month preparing for Thanksgiving and the rest of the month celebrating my birthday! There were lots of good eats and fun things happening this month, so here we go: I tried to go to the Luke’s Diner pop-up that Netflix put on so I could grab a coffee but […]

September on Planet Byn {2016}

September 30, 2016 Monthly Recaps

My social policy this summer was to say YES to everything, which meant I had lots of fun, but then basically didn’t feel leaving the house in September. I laid low and cooked almost exclusively out of the new Oh She Glows Everyday (which I’m blogging about over here). There wasn’t much else going on […]

August 31, 2016 Monthly Recaps

August was long, hot and sad over here on Planet Byn. I won’t get into the details, and instead do what I do best, which is talk about the food: My friend Jenn had me over for a pool day at her new house and I brought this S’mores Pie with me. I haven’t made […]
